Some of the most powerful instrumental works ever done by this band, some of the best vocals ever done by Mark E. Smith, and some of the most emotional and catchy songs from The Fall are here.
Hella underrated.

Least Fav: Kurious Oranj
This is the first Fall album I've heard. Eclectic excellence. Maybe runs a little long but there's some really memorable stuff on here.

Essential track - C.D. Win Fall 2080 AD
Scoring a ballet isn't easy for an abrasive post-punk band fronted by an abrasive creative genius, but Mark and the band produce impressive results given the criteria. "I Am Kurious Oranj" is a driving collection of strong and well-arranged songs, boosted by orchestral additions and a meticulous sequencing that gives the record a true sense of narrative. Furthermore, the album seamlessly packs some of the most iconic Fall tunes.
